At UKC we are all climbers and we understand the strong urge to be outdoors as the weather is finally improving. Please proceed with caution though.

Park at the viewpoint car park. Follow directions from rockfax guidebook. Descent to the cliffs can be dangerous and is exposed. take care or take the long route round.
|Visited the area today (April '18) and a local park ranger explained the area is off-limits to climbers due to nesting birds and other protected species within the nature reserve - all year round. Just a heads up - a nice view point though! |

|Cars Norte bolts look trashed and I think they’re only 7 years old? The bolts at Gringo Star are also bad although we managed Pammi-A 6b+ and they didn’t seem as corroded |

|Climbed in April 2015: bolts on the "new" routes on Cara Norte are now the rustiest I've ever seen. Did not inspire confidence. Shame; the routes are superb.|

|Climbed here on 13 October 2010. Some bolts were rusty on the surface but still totally solid. The new routes on Cara Norte are superb. From the left - 7a, 6b, 5+ - all 3 star.|

|Visited in October 2010 - did not climb as deemed bolts and lower offs on climbs we were interested in (6bs up) too rusty to trust. Some new hangers on old bolts, some new route activity with lines of bolts not described in guidebook.|
